Arsenal ready to offer South American striker £120k-a-week deal

By on June 13, 2016

According to a report in the Express, Edinson Cavani wants to move to the Premier League this summer and Arsenal are ready to tempt him with a contract worth £120,000-a-week.

Cavani is a name that has long been inked with a move to Arsenal and the newspaper claims that he’s once again emerged as a top target for Arsene Wenger this summer after our deal for Jamie Vardy stalled.

The England international has decided to mull over his proposed £20m switch to the Emirates until after Euro 2016 after Leicester came in with an improved contract offer and it looks like we’ve decided to look in to alternative targets.

The Express suggest that Wenger will launch a move for Cavani if Vardy opts to remain at the King Power and will look to tempt the Uruguayan international with a contract worth £120,000-a-week.

Cavani has supposedly just turned down a lucrative move to China with the newspaper claiming the 29-year-old wants to come to the Premier League so we should have a decent chance of luring him to the Emirates if we do end up making our interest official.

The former Napoli hitman is a superb talent and scored 25 goals to help PSG land yet another domestic treble last season but understandably it looks like he wants a new challenge and I’d love to see him at Arsenal.

I’ve had my doubts over Vardy as like many I’m not sure he fits in to our style of play but Cavani could be perfect. He’s got the build to play up front on his own and has the pace we need to stretch defences, and I think he’d be a huge success in North London.

So if it was a straight choice between Vardy or Cavani, I’d go for the South American without hesitation. Vardy has had the cheek to ‘think’ about joining us, so let’s ditch that deal and go all-out for Cavani.

    120k per week is hardly tempting the player when he just turned down a 500k per week offer from china

    Arsenal will never ever sign a player who is over 28 and above, unless the player is on free transfer.

      Even free there is a possibility a player wouldn’t b recruited if over 28 … LoOk at the excellent ibrahimovic … We should b getting Higuain or Aubameyang … Lewandoski …. Not cavani or morata … Once again they’re not aiming high enough … They won’t do the right thing … Pathetic Failure again … :-\ :-O 🙁

    Wenger has to accept Theo and Giroud go as he tries to find a perfect striker like vady or cavani plus another foward like marhez
